New details about the intended 2016 Moto X turns out to glide in day by day. After seeing its original enclosure (probably steel) or even a look at its internal chassis, word is now spreading that Motorola’s 2016 flagship will have a fingerprint scanner. Motorola used to be the primary Android OEM to place a fingerprint scanner into a phone (pictured at the Motorola Atrix beneath), however they haven’t been hasty to go back to these roots.
While rumors are rumors, we’d say it’s one value striking a gamble on. There are a few other explanation why a fingerprint scanner at the Moto X 2016 makes overall feel:
- Motorola used to be already toying round with the theory for the Nexus 6, however made up our minds to scrap it on the final minute. They obviously need to reinforce the generation.
- There’s an respectable API for it as of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. We reckon Motorola didn’t rush to incorporate a fingerprint scanner in in advance telephones as a result of they might have needed to create their very own customized framework for it, one thing they need to shy clear of as they appear to make use of Android most commonly as Google can provide it.
- It’s simply sensible industry. Android Pay is setting out, and all their competition are beginning to come with it as a same old function on their handsets. You don’t need to be the one corporate with a telephone that doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner in 2016.
Of path, simply because it is sensible on paper doesn’t imply this rumor is any longer than a rumor, so we’ll nonetheless choose to take it with a grain of salt.
